I have a design for a leaflet but need to change the text colour but whatever i try, it won't work ...

Could someone have a go for me? The text is the blue highlighted in with the code at the top (image in next post). It needs to be a dark red / maroon colour.

thanks

Have you got it saved as layers or have you flattened the image?
PM me if it's in layers and I'll have a go for you (no promises though - bit of a Photoshop amateur)

is it a jpg, or do you have a photoshop file with the layers on, if you can send me a link to a larger pic than this one I could do it easily for you
or if its in layers still i could tell you how to do it yourself, its easy peasy if its still in layers, a little harder if its a jpg but still can be done

It's in jpg unfortunately. That's the largest size i can get it, but should be able to adjust the width etc in photoshop. The person who made it, only sent me the jpg of it :x

thanks

Surely a quick rub out and insert text? I would do it but i can't be bothered.

+1. That's the quickest way to do this if all you have is the jpg.

rub out and insert will make this look appalling.

Rub out ALL the text you can see, and re write it in a new layer on the top. save it as a PSD file and then you can go back and change it.

which bit do u want changeing, the gareth bit, or make the right choice ..... or both?

No it won't, get a text that looks the same and you're sorted.

both please, the gareth bit a bit darker than the next line :thumbsup:


I would rub it out but I don't know what font they used etc and I don't have a copy of photoshop, i only have fireworks.

just use the pencil tool in the right colour and colour over it, it doesnt change the white background, only affects whats already coloured

prob not the right red, but that took me less than a minute

could the second line be darker as it looks too pinky ;-)

Thanks for your help:thumbsup:

I've used a different method than all these guys, just lasso'd the desired area and used adjustments - colour balance and altered the settings on shadows, midtones and highlights until reached correct effect.

Involves selecting the bit you wanna change and then playing about with "replace colour" to get it to:
